Ethereum’s co-founder Vitalik Buterin is at Bitcoin Miami, the first in-person crypto event since 2019 that welcomes more than 20,000 attendees.
The sold out conference at $1,500 per ticket opens a ‘whale’ event today attendable at the cost of $20,000.
On Friday the speakers lineup then progresses to Saturday with Jack Dorsey to be there, as well as Senator Cynthia Lummis who said bitcoin is a “good store of value.”
Ron Paul will speak too and Michael Saylor of Microstrategy as well as Floyd Mayweather and Tony Hawk.
There are numerous sessions including ‘WTF Happened In 1971?’ by Heavily Armed Clown and Ben Prentice.
Numerous stats show a structural economic change in the 70s, like wages no longer quite keeping up with growth. So we’ll see what the clown has to say about it.
How To NOT Pay Taxes On Your Bitcoin by Adam Bergman might also be an interesting session. Maybe something like tokenize it as wBTC, put it as collateral, the borrowed money is now a loan. OR hop from country to country every six months.
The conference is focused on bitcoin with Buterin himself not listed as a speaker, although who knows he might have a surprise slot.
There are numerous events around it however and plenty seem to be about NFTs as well as presumably some defi.
Unlike many other US states, Florida does not have any restrictions and the government there has made it illegal to request things like vaccine passports or mask wearing.
Making this the first crypto event that returns normality with crypto clowns and no-meme t-shirt wearing Buterin (that’s not normal!).
